How Did Fish Get Ich?

I have Quarantined all my fish. My last addition was a Blue Hippo Tang which I coppered in a QT. It showed no signs of ick for the 4 weeks it was in the QT. Placed him in my 90 gallon DT. After about 3 weeks in the display it now has ich. How did that happen? None of the other fish are showing signs.

Have you had ich in your DT before. Did you QT your original fish? The other fishes did not show ich because they might have gotten imune to the ich. The new fish is the one under the most stress and that's how it got the ich.
